Full Text

1 I believe in Jesus and His word,
The word of life, so sweet and free,
And that He came to manifest His love,
And by His death to ransom me.

O how sweet it is to sing,
I believe, I believe!
To Him alone my soul will cling;
I believe on the Son of God.

2 I believe in Jesus and His cross,
And in the blood so freely shed;
I know He takes away the guilt of sin,
And grants me pardon in its stead. [Refrain]

3 I believe in Jesus and His name,
That gives access to mercy’s throne;
No other name can satisfy my faith,
For I am saved by Him alone. [Refrain]
